Had another negative encounter, it's been a few years since the last one, just an uneducated ******, going on about drones being illegal yada yada yada.    :-/
Still that didn't spoil my flying time, had an absolute blast  ~~

Just had a thought, even with all the crashing I've done, I haven't bought any replacement props in over a year ~~

Just fixed a busted SMA connector on my TBS unity pigtail, it suffered badly in a recent crash and split in two, nothing a touch of the soldering iron couldn't fix  :D

My first FPV video  :smiley: it';s rather dull to be honest not helped by experimenting with velcro to mount the recording camera, I';ll be going back to foam and elestic I think.

For the first minute or so I was correcting the yaw trim, I must have knocked the trim switch beforehand.


I still seem to have wobbles when descending or yawing too that I need to get to the bottom of, the plus side was I kept it in the air until the end when the batteries didn';t have enough juice to keep it in the air and it descended into grass.

The Hobby King low battery alarm is rubbish too and often lets out a weak strangled squwk rather than a beep as you can hear here.

Despite all this it was great fun :)

Nicely done that man :cool:

One thing would be to time your flights and stick to the 80% rule rather than relying on an alarm or flying until it cannot fly any more. Running LiPo packs down like that will really shorten their life span.

nub

not so dull when your flying it though :smiley: well done.

i';d watch your battery though it can make your quad do a flip if u let your battery run to low, well that';s what my DJI/KK2 did anyways :laugh:
